Reviews

With her lucid synthesis of recent research, Shipman demonstrates that Homo sapiens was and is the very model of an invasive species.--Harriet Ritvo, Arthur J. Conner Professor of History, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Are humans the ultimate invasive species? So contends anthropologist Pat Shipman--and Neanderthals, she opines, were among our first victims. The relationship between Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis is laid out cleanly, along with genetic and other evidence. Shipman posits provocatively that the deciding factor in the triumph of our ancestors was the domestication of wolves. Perhaps more troubling is the concept of early humans as invaders, rather than just another species finding its way.--Daniel Cressey"Nature" (04/02/2015)
Since the discovery in the 19th century of Neanderthal remains, the cause of their extinction has arguably been the most compelling mystery in human evolution... The Invaders offers us the appealing prospect of an expert writing on her specialism and clearly having a great deal of fun doing so. Shipman builds an extremely compelling case for the role of Homo sapiens as an invasive species who arrived in Europe about 40,000 to 50,000 years ago and had an immediate impact on their new ecosystem. The Neanderthals were not the only victims... What makes Shipman's argument really stand out and offer a fresh perspective on the extinction of Neanderthals is the role that she gives to wolves in the process that led to the dominance of Homo sapiens.--Simon Underdown"Times Higher Education" (04/23/2015)
